Cause

Cause 1: Configuration issue

The major cause would be the rules are configured such that it will trigger/set an event reason on modifying data on a particular field.

The event derivation here is happening via rules, but the Provisioning option 'Enable Business Rules for Event Reason Derivation' is not enabled.

Also if you are deriving workflow via rules please check 'Enable Business Rules for Workflow Derivation' setting from provisioning.

In one instance the cause of this issue is because of data inconsistency in the job information record of the employee.

 

Cause 2: Data issue

Check the adHoc Audit report on the employee where you get this error and verify the end dates of records. Example:

start-date end-date
7/28/1999 5/30/2017
5/31/2017 6/30/2017

The end date of the last record is not set to 12/31/9999, this is a data issue as all latest record will have end date as 12/31/9999.
